Re: Brie...

Brie de meaux,is a superb cheese. Brie is French, I think. Somerset Brie, not sure if itís right to call it Brie? It should be called something else. Waitrose does some great French soft cheeses. If ever youíre in London La Fromagerie is also good for that. But Nealís Yard is much better (mostly stunningly good  U.K. cheese).

How do you like the Brie to be when you eat it .
Chilled straight from the fridge , or at room temperature ?
What sort of texture do you like it to be.

It could be that simply altering the temperature of the cheese or allowing it to ripen more might improve its flavour for you.

Re: Brie...

Sadely as the high street deli closes we have to rely on the big boys. If your lucky enough to still have a butcher and they have enough resources to fund a seperate member of staff to run a cheese counter [its the law] they do their best to cater for you.
Even luckier to have a local farm shop, although fuel and time to get to these often out of the way places all adds up.

I was bought up eating Brie that had been left long enough to be running over the plate  and never eaten straight form the fridge.

I find many people eat Brie when it is still fairly firm and the cheese has some texture rather than it being very smooth and slightly runny in the center.
